Nicolas is going through a difficult phase after his parents’ divorce. He’s listless, skipping classes, lying. He believes moving in with his father and his new family may help. A different school, a fresh start. When he senses he isn’t wanted there, he decides to go back to his mother’s. But what happens when the options dry up?
I’m telling you. I don’t understand what’s happening to me.
Florian Zeller’s The Son completes a trilogy with The Mother and The Father, all of which are translated by Christopher Hampton. The Son premiered at the Kiln Theatre, London, in February 2019, and transferred to the Duke of York’s Theatre in August.
Florian Zeller has been called the most exciting playwright of our times, and this take-your-breath-away effort will reinforce that view. This final part of his family trilogy may be the most powerful of all.
The surgical precision of the writing achieves a devastating visceral impact.
I’d defy anyone not to be moved by this study of the disruptive dynamics of family life.
